University of North Carolina , September 1, 1847.

SIR:

At the last annual meeting of the Association of the Alumni of this University, upon a motion submitted by Judge Mason , it was determined to raise in the College Grove a Monument to the memory of the late PRESIDENT CALDWELL . For obvious reasons, it was further agreed that no individual subscription should exceed the sum of three dollars.
The undersigned, having been subsequently appointed to collect the funds necessary for this purpose, take the liberty of requesting a contribution at your hands. A deep sense of the services of the late PRESIDENT is so universally entertained, that it would be idle to enter upon their detail at this time; nor is it thought necessary to say, that the Monument in contemplation is meant rather as an expression of filial regard, than a return proportioned to the marked public benefits which it was the well-regulated, earnest endeavor and signal good fortune of his life to confer.
The Society wishes to effect its purpose as soon as may be possible. Nearly a fourth of the sum required has already been collected, and we hope to make an early acknowledgement of your cheerful tribute towards a design so well suggested, and thus far carried out with fair prospects of speedy success.
